About The St. Andrews Arts Council


The St Andrews Arts Council offers performing arts courses, master classes and workshops in Opera, Voice, Choir, Drama, Dance, Screenwriting and Instrumental Music for students of all ages from beginner to professional.


Lewis Dalvit (pictured with his late wife Patricia) founded the St. Andrews Arts Council and Summer School for the Performing Arts in 1986. Maestro Dalvit has conducted extensively in Europe, Canada, the Middle East, Mexico, Central America and the US.


The St. Andrews Arts Council (with the help of donors) sponsors a Music in the Schools (MITS) program so that local schoolchildren receive regular music instruction throughout the school year in their classrooms.
